- Continuum Proprietary Red 2009 Magnum (1.5l) Product #26478 (In Stock)
"Sleek and understated, making its mark with firm, dense, tightly wound espresso, dried berry, crushed rock and black licorice flavors, with a finish that emphasizes the loamy earthiness. The tannins are firm and well-integrated."Wine Spectator 94 points
"I was super-impressed with the two wines I tasted from Continuum Estate, Tim Mondavi’s new venture on Pritchard Hill, not far from Chappellet and Bryant. Mondavi is gradually moving towards 100% estate fruit, but these early vintages include some fruit from vineyards in Oakville and Stags Leap. Continuum is distinguished by a fairly large presence of Cabernet Franc. This is one of the most exciting new properties in Napa Valley. The 2009 Continuum comes across as much more understated next to the 2008. It has plenty of silkiness and finesse, but less of the size and shape of its older sibling. Dark cherries, espresso, exotic spices and licorice are woven together in a fabric of notable elegance and harmony. The 2009 Continuum is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot, 82% of which came from estate-grown fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Wine Advocate 94 points
- Dom Weinbach Gewurztraminer Altenbourg 2010 Magnum Product #26627 (In Stock)
Hand crafted wine bottled in magnum by hand to our order. As far as we know, the only example you'll find in the USA!
"A subtle note of white truffle adds depth to flavors of dried papaya and apricot, smoke, candied citrus peel and beeswax, while zesty acidity provides fine structure and focus, leading to a long, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2025."Wine Spectator 93 points
"Full yellow-straw. Piquant spicy lift to the aromas of peach, honey and botanical herbs. Quite sweet and silky but not at all heavy thanks to harmonious acidity. Expands impressively in the mouth, spreading out to saturate the palate. In a very mellow style and not at all exaggerated, with a positive hint of finishing bitterness providing grip on the spicy, rising finish."International Wine Cellar 92 points
